Speaking about the award-winning work, DU Wenbiao said, “2.5 million years ago, human ancestors walked slowly from the stone age toward us today. Stone is the carrier to record the development of human history, architecture and space are the containers of ideas and culture, and the four seasons in the south of the country are always decorated by flowers and trees. This design is mainly to use the original stone as the cultural carrier and the space as the container of ideas to interpret the soul of oriental aesthetics of floral art.”
